Yesterday in our ‘One Garden’ session we celebrated the fact that at least one academic has bridged the gap between academic research and teaching and the age-old wisdom core of the great Traditions.
Yesterday we used a paper entitled ‘I = Awareness’ by a professor of psychiatry Arthur J Deikman.
If you are at all interested in inter-spirituality, nonduality or interfaith understanding this paper is absolutely key!
You can read, or re-read, the paper here – http://www.deikman.com/awareness.html
Professor Deikman’s spiritual path included Buddhism and Sufism.
Arthur J. Deikman (September 27, 1929 – September 2, 2013) was a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco, and a member of the editorial board of the ‘Journal of Humanistic Psychology’ and ‘Human Givens’. He was also a contributor to ‘The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease’.
